Distributed Generation and Smart Grids

Enrollment is Closed

About This Course

With increasing energy demand, distributed generation and Smartgrid is an increasingly viable and used option, and is currently a reality all over the world.The changes in the structure of the use of energy resources and the growth in the production of electricity from renewable energy sources strongly confirms the fact that global energy is on the verge of spectacular changes. The irreversibility of the transition to the next technological structure is also due to the fact that the increasing depreciation of fixed assets in the energy sector, distributed energy resources are dynamically developing, the demand for energy is growing and the pattern of consumer behaviour gradually begins to change.This subject will give a conceptual introduction to various distributed generation systems, micro grids, smart grids and their control.
